Toothpaste, Custard and Chocolate: Maths gets messy, a talk by Helen Wilson (University College London)
This talk will look at mathematical modelling of real, complex fluids in flow situations – some with serious commercial applications, and some just for fun. We’ll spend most of the time looking at the chocolate fountain. We’ll experience one of the key day-to-day tools of an applied mathematician: scaling analysis; and we’ll answer the question: why doesn’t the chocolate fall straight down?
